Knowing that my hair was falling out I tried my best to prepare. I had my wig ready, my hats ready, and even shaved it short when I knew it was time. But…………. nothing, and I mean nothing prepares you for the moment it truly does.
I decided today to take a bath. As i soaked in the nice clean tub I decided to wash my hair. That was a huge mistake. I washed my hair and I knew my hands would be covered in hair… and they were. What I did not know is that everytime I barely touched my head or arms etc. There would be hair everywhere. It started filling a good portion of the water and I just sort of panicked! I yelled for John to help. He started up the shower and I was able to wash off yet again.
I re-washed my hair and at that point just prayed the rest would just fall out. It was every where. All over the tub, now the shower, and now me. I just sprayed off as best as I could and got the hell out of there.
It was a horrible experience, that unless you have gone through it or are going through it ,will know what it’s like. I hope to never have another moment like that again.
My end with a good note: John was there for me when I yelled his name for help. He didn’t say much, just wanted to help me in any way possible. I am glad I have him
